  • mitosis and the cell cycle
    • cells go through a series of changes involving growth and division called the cell cycle
    • one of the stages in mitosis when the cell divides into two identical cells
    • before a cell can divide it needs to grow and increase the number of sub-cellular structures such as ribosomes and mitochondria
    • the DNA then replicates to form two copies of each chromosome
    • during mitosis
      • one set of chromosomes is pulled to each end of the cell
        • the nucleus divides
          • the cytoplasm and cell membranes divide to form two identical cells
